Recently unsealed opinion about relator's share--victory!

Below is a superb opinion by U.S. District Court (Houston) Judge Melinda Harmon, addressing the issue of relator's share.  It's frustrating that, on occasion, DoJ wants to shortchange a relator, despite substantial risk, money, and effort by the relator and his counsel.  But Judge Harmon's elegant opinion does a nice job of looking at the statutory language of the False Claims Act and the legislative history that shepherded the 1986 amendments through enactment.
